Class 5A #1 Carl Albert and #2 Bishop McGuinness squared off Friday night at Jim Harris Field with the Carl Albert Titans coming out on top 21-6. The Titans move to 6-0 and are favorited to win the 5A-2 district championship.
With a 14-6 lead late in the fourth quarter, Carl Albert relied on their defense to come up. Zane Alexander would be the catalyst to a stout Titans defense, coming up with big plays, including a hard hit preventing a potential Bishop McGuinness touchdown.
Carl Albert’s final score of the night would be a 50 yard pass from Carter LaValley to Chris Veales with 20 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
Bishop McGuinness had 240 rushing yards, 168 of which came from sophomore running back Dominic Richardson.
